Dell'Apa: Slim chance for U.S. World Cup seeding in 2010

FIFA doesn't easily forgive or forget when it comes to World Cup seedings.

If the U.S. goes to South Africa next year, hanging over its head will be losses to Germany, Iran and Yugoslavia (1998) and to the Czech Republic and Ghana (2006). And, even should the U.S. remain high in the FIFA rankings and win the CONCACAF qualifying group, it has almost no chance of being selected as a seeded team.
